At this very moment, I have so many half-started projects that I'm beginning to lose focus. I have 5 CD calendars that I'm working on for Christmas gifts, 15 or so Halloween peek-a-boo boxes for co-workers, and pieces of a project for the resources page on Splitcoast due next month. I just received some new cuttlebug folders that I'm really dying to play with, but I don't dare start one more thing before I'm done with at least one of the projects above. Surely I'm not the only crafter out there with a workspace like this...want to reassure me a little? *grin* - wow, was that off topic or what. OK..back to the trader sketch...lol
Drawing sketches is not one of my strong points, and it's not for the lack of programs available to me...I just don't want to take the time to learn how to do them. That sounds really bad, but I just have so many other pressing matters that this task always takes a back seat. Bad or good, this is the sketch that I used.
I'm pleased with the way my card turned out, and I'm so loving the First Fruits set from Papertrey. My fall cards have always taken a backseat to Halloween and Christmas cards at this time of year, but with this set, I'm more motivated than ever to turn out some autumn greetings.
Please feel free to use the sketch above (I'm sure Stampin' Up! won't mind...lol). If you do use the sketch, please post a comment here along with a link so that I can see your creation! Thank you so much for popping in this Wednesday, it always makes me smile!
Stuff I Used: Stamps: First Fruits, Year Round Puns; Papers: Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Remix Patterned Paper, Vintage Cream; Inks: Burnt Umber; Other Stuff: Dark Chocolate Luxe Satin Ribbon, Dotted Organza Ribbon from my stash, Gold Cord (SU!) Corner Rounder, and Spiral Punch.
